What was Mohandas #Gandhi doing carrying wounded #British soldiers off the battlefield in #SouthAfrica in 1899? Gandhi was merely leading by example, in the ambulance corps he set up to support the British against the Boers in the Second Boer War (1899-1902). 1/12
#war
But why would Gandhi support the British, especially since he had experienced the humiliation of racial discrimination in South Africa soon after he got there? It was #OnThisDay in 1893 that Gandhi was thrown off a train for refusing to comply with racial segregation laws. 2/12
This was more than a decade before Gandhi evolved his concept of #civildisobedience. He spent 21 years (1893 - 1914) in South Africa and went on to organize the #CivilRights movement, to raise the status of the indentured #Indian population there. 3/12

We're in a Climate & Ecological Crisis, Sixth Mass Extinction, a threat to us all. Fossil fuels, though they account for over 80% of carbon emissions produced by humans, continue to be widely used. That's massively destabilising our biosphere, yet our Parliament says/does nothing Image

When the 68 uprising graffitied Paris with “Be Realistic, Demand the Impossible!” who thought this call to action would meet its alter ego years later in the UK?

For what is Insulate Britain if not: Be Impossible, Demand the Realistic?

🧵A #Thread.
In the face of the #climate emergency happening now, XR recognises the need for disruptive actions that highlight the severity of the crisis. Insulate Britain is playing a vital role in shifting the Overton Window around public awareness and urgent government action. #ActNow
The recent attempt to ban a form of protest from happening anywhere in the UK is a warning to all of us who dare to stand up for truth; the UK government is coming for us all. It is also a complete vindication of our resistance.

Our reponse to the IPCC AR6: Scientific establishments are starting to say what climate activists have been saying for decades: we are beyond the precipice, our only hope is a political revolution.
Climate tipping points are already breached, our weather violently disturbed, our food supplies at risk, our water endangered, our homes threatened, and our prospects for survival under siege.
Terrifyingly - this is the conservative view, the inescapable reality wrapped in a soft and agreeable tone. The truth is we have been murdered in our sleep, our futures stripped and sold like assets, gambling chips in the games of billionaires.

THREAD 22 of writing against the 🪖-coup. It might be on emotional shock and feeling numb. It might be on the suffering of others. It might be on a new advocacy group - or on all of the above. #March4Coup #CivilDisobedienceMovementMyanmar #WhatsHappeningInMyanmar Artist: Kuekool
1. This post by #Rohingya #activist @Ali_Jinnah_222 captures two things I want to write about today: being at a loss of words in regard to one’s own feelings - and being in #solidarity with the suffering of others. #March4Coup #CivilDisobedienceMovement
2. All of my research in #Myanmar has been with/about ethnic #minorities. My interlocutors are #Muslims and #Hindus locally referred to as “Burmese #Indians”. All of my research assistants happen to be #Kachin #Christians. I have #Chin friends, too

If you really want to make a change in the world, do something hard like #nonviolent #resistance. Read up and learn #satyagraha or change. It takes #strength & #courage; physical force is forbidden even in the so-called most favorable circumstances.

If your cause is #righteous, Gandhi believed, the movement would speak for itself.

My personal justification for it is #psychological/#neurological (#CNS/#HPA).

If you use #violence, well the one with the biggest #ego or the biggest ego-extension (guns, tanks, war) will win.
Removing tools of violence (words, arms) from the equation, you form a mirror.

It's not easy though. You'd have to refine/drop/manage/elevate past your own #ego.

People - depending on personal history & psychology - sometimes become enraged at what they see in the #mirror.

🐝#SwarmTheSenate-Day 11🐝
1/3 FIRST #CivilDisobedience action of the day. This one featuring a yuuge #RemoveTrump banner in the Russell Rotunda. Six arrested. @ABC caught the action from their dedicated outpost. The hive’s media team?..pushed back under the threat of arrest.
🐝#SwarmTheSenate - Day 11🐝
2/3 Four of the six arrested in the hive’s first action of the day in the Senate Rotunda are #Veterans because we know @realDonaldTrump is #UnfitToServe. He is a threat to our national and global security and we know it is our duty to #RemoveTrump . ImageImage
🐝#SwarmTheSenate - Day 11🐝
3/3 The hive starts each day at noon by forming up in silence in the Hart Senate Atrium. On this day, it ended by not abiding Capitol Police rules. The stakes are just too high and the time is now to #RemoveTrump. And so this with five more arrests. ImageImage
